9 things to expect from E3 2018, the biggest week in games

If you keep up with the news about games, it might seem that E3, the industry's annual showcase in Los Angeles, has already been going on for weeks. Let's see some of the main games that have been announced since last month: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Battlefield V Rage 2 Fallout 76 Pok é ] mon: Let & # 39; s Go Assassin & # 39; s Creed Odyssey . That does not even include unofficial leaks, like the one that points to Fortnite coming to the Nintendo Switch.

Those are some important names, so big, in fact, that it could make you wonder: Is there something new and surprising in E3 this year? But this is not a new situation. Publishers of large games have been constantly moving ads ahead of E3 for years. 2018 is just the most extreme example so far. Last year, we already knew about the likes of Destiny 2 Far Cry 5 Star Wars Battlefront 2 and the Xbox One X (then still known as the Scorpio Project) before the show. However, despite all this, there was still a lot to be excited about once the E3 was launched. The same should be true this year.

While we do not know all the surprises that await you, here are some things you can expect.

That other Pok é mon game

Recently there have been many Pok é mon news. The series made its long-awaited switch debut with the free game Pokémon Quest and a stronger Pokémon Pok é mon Go is coming to the platform in November , called Pokémon: Let & # 39; s Go . There is even a new pokéball controller in process. But none of that is related to the "core" game Pokémon that Nintendo revealed at E3 last year. We have not heard anything about that game since 2017, so it's likely that we'll finally get some details at E3 next week. While Let & # 39; s Go is aimed at younger fans and those who were attracted to the relatively simple Pok é mon Go this Switch RPG probably It will be much more in line with the main series.

A first look at Metroid Prime 4

One of the biggest surprises of last year was the revelation that a new Metroid was in process for the Switch. Unfortunately, all we got was a name and a logo. That should change next week. While the focus of Nintendo's E3 presence will be on the new Super Smash Bros. there are many chances that the company will finally show what it looks like Metroid Prime 4 and possibly it will give a launch window 2019. Longtime Prime developer Retro Studios is not behind the game this time, so it will be interesting to see how the fourth installment part of the original trilogy.

A Star Fox … racing game?

Speaking of Retro, a series of rumors suggest that the studio is working hard on the next installment of the beloved series Star Fox . But this will not be a typical space shooter. Instead, he is expected to be a futuristic runner. It is said to be called Star Fox Grand Prix and is in process for the Switch. And although we do not know much about it, if it's real, it could be the closest thing to a new F-Zero for some time.

Bethesda finally reveals Starfield

For years there have been rumors and reports that Bethesda is working on an open space themed RPG called Starfield . (I think Skyrim but science fiction.) 2018 could be the year we finally see it. Bethesda has been particularly busy these past few weeks, announcing both Rage 2 and Fallout 76 before her E3 showcase. It's almost as if the editor is cleaning a place to announce something big.

Kingdom Hearts III has a real release date

It's starting to look like Kingdom Hearts III will actually come at some point in this decade. Square Enix showed the game in playable form at an event in Los Angeles last month. It is likely that we not only see more in E3, but we can also find out when it is launched. The editor is even presenting a main speech broadcast live for the first time in years, suggesting he has great news in store. The real question is: when will we see the guys from Final Fantasy XV in the game?

The first look at Avengers game

Last January, Square Enix joked a new collaboration with Marvel in the form of a Avengers game jointly developed by Crystal Dynamics ( Rise of the Tomb Raider ) and Eidos Montreal ( Deus Ex: Mankind Divided ). It was an exciting concept, but since then … nothing. Given the current fever Avengers in place due to a small movie called Infinity War we hope to see the first real look at the game, which will feature a completely new story that is separate from the movies .

What is Beyond Good & Evil 2 really?

Ubisoft captivated everyone last year with an exciting new trailer of the much anticipated Beyond Good & Evil 2 . But when we saw the game later in E3, it turned out to be not only very different from the original cult classic, but also very early in development. With so many confusing messages about the sequel, Ubisoft will probably provide a clearer picture of what it is Beyond Good & Evil 2 and why original fans should be interested in a massive online multiplayer game. that the same universe is set.

Return of big names of Xbox

As always, I hope that Microsoft leans on some familiar faces when it comes to its line of Xbox One games. We are about to receive the new ones Gears of War and Forza releases, and the long rumored Halo 6 is also a good bet. The real question is whether Microsoft will have something new to show. Sea of ​​Thieves was a step in the right direction, but hopefully there will be more in store by 2018. Other than that, the company will likely rely heavily on hardware, including the recently announced Adaptive Controller and potentially a successor to the Elite too.

Anthem is the anti- Battlefront

EA received much criticism for the way he handled monetization in Star Wars Battlefront II and since then, the company has promised " be better". It began with the revelation of Battlefield V that according to EA will not include spoils of booty, and is likely to continue with Anthem a science fiction online shooter game of developer of Mass Effect BioWare. With Destiny 2 fighting, there is an opening for Anthem to fill that gap. One of the ways EA will try to do that is with messaging, which shows how Anthem can be a much friendlier experience for the player.
